This post is going to be something a little different – you see, usually I type things into the internet ether because the people around me aren’t inclined to listen to me rant out loud (or because I’ve already rambled on about it incessantly and everyone is sick of listening). But last week, some very nice people from WAMU 88.5 in Washington D.C. decided they wanted to listen.
Along with Mythic designer Kate Flack, CNN’s Larry Frum, and GamesIndustry’s Mike Williams, I was asked to participate in a call-in discussionabout the current state and future of diversity in videogames.
The show was a lot of fun, and while we didn’t have nearly enough time to do justice to the enormity of the topic “diversity in videogames” or even to the questions asked of us, I hope that we did get to dispel the myth of the white-man-living-in-his-mother’s-basement. Maybe, if we were really lucky, we’ll have encouraged some developer somewhere, someday to make a game that represents the vast diversity of the world we live in.
